Hi Bros,

I need some help regarding this, as you see in the image , there are black wavy lines on the right side of my picture,also on the top right hand corner you will see this as well , it happened when i was using another lens as well. I tried googling for answer but i dont know how to describe the lines problem and results they gave me are nice pictures with black lines instead ;p


Currently using 5D with a 24-105 f4, recently tried with 50mm 1.8 also has this issue.

Classic dust. Learn to use a rocket blower.

I saw the manual asking to do the sensor cleaning option and use rubber blower to blow the dust...That should be sufficient right? I saw some other solution using sensor swap to clean the sensors, i dont need that right? Its kinda scary process as i rarely touch the inside of my camera...:embrass:

Welcome to the world of DSLR. You need to learn the basics of cleaning, otherwise your camera will be in the service centre more than out of it.

To add on,

A good blow should settle UNWELDED dust if you do it properly.

For welded dust (dust with moisture which causes it to adhere to surfaces), you would need wet cleaning.

Just to add on, do NOT attempt to use your mouth to blow in...it will cause more complications than help to blow it out.

it's not that scary to clean the sensor yourself... its not that delicate as u think (of cos not cleaning by brunt force lah).

i learnt this art from edutilos-. haha

just buy yourself a bottle of Eclipse Cleaning Solution then with a good grade cotton bud, u can start cleaning the senor (actually its the filter) yourself.
